Guided Fly-In Alaska Day Hikes in Wrangell-St. Elias NP

As soon as you leave the Kennicott Valley, you are in a world that few have visited. Fly in to places that can only reached by an Alaskan bush plane and a skilled pilot for the best possible Alaska day hikes. Experience this magical wilderness during the day and still be back in time for dinner and a hot shower…

Our fly-in hikes include your guide and any technical gear you may need (such as crampons). A few of our trips are listed below; however there are countless options available.

Many clients prefer to let us know their budget as well as what they want to see and do, then allow us to pick their destination. This gives us the flexibility to make last-minute adjustments depending on weather and current events (e.g. when Doubtful Creek recently changed course – carving its way through the Nizina Glacier – an incredible show! For additional information, or to schedule your fly-in hike, contact us!
